NOISE AND TRACTION CHARACTERISTICS OF BIAS-PLY TRUCK TIRS. VOLUME 1-NOISE AND DRY TRACTION FINDINGS.

This project has established a data base of noise and traction characteristics for a sample of bias-ply heavy truck tires. The tire sample, representing both "rib" and "lug" type tread patterns, was tested according to the SAE J-57 tire noise procedure and in a variety of laboratory and over-the-road traction experiments. Dry-pavement traction results show that the noisier lug-type tires exhibit traction properties which are generally less desirable from the viewpoint of their influence on vehicle response to steering and braking./HSRI/
